What a wonderful week we had enjoying the films and filmmakers her in town through the Big Sky Documentary Film Festival! Our middle school kids enjoyed, “Walk with me”, “Badger Creek” and “Soy Cubana.” During two different question and answer sessions, the filmmakers told the teachers that our students asked the best questions they’ve heard — even better than adults on the film festival circuit. We highly encourage you to get your kiddos out this weekend to see more films! The students’ also all received free passes to the Schoolhouse Doc series.

We also enjoyed Lineage Dance, a contemporary dance company out of Los Angeles this week. Four of our middle schoolers accompanied the students, Grace and Collin on the cello and guitar respectively and Karma and Amelia with poetry. We were so proud of our risk-taking performers!
7th grade parents, please mark your calendars as our 7th grade poets will have their culminating poetry reading on March 8th at 8:45 upstairs in room 9. Please join us in this culminating celebration of their words and creativity!
